Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid (HA)is a popular ingredient added to skincare products. It is a clear color. Hyaluronic acid is a component that is in our connective tissue. Connective tissue includes bone, blood, fat, cartilage, and lymphatic tissue.

By age 20, the hyaluronic acid in our body starts to decrease. By age 50, it has reduced to half. Adding hyaluronic acid is a great benefit to the body. There are even hyaluronic acid supplements. If you plan to take HA supplements, I suggest checking with a healthcare professional first.

Hyaluronic acid is a humectant. A humectant retains moisture Humectants keep our skin hydrated. Hyaluronic acid slows down the rate of water evaporation by holding the water molecules on the surface of the skin.
